HERON Cornelia includes PCORNet Data Quality fixes including RX Days Supply and Amount

A derivative of the HERON Repository is used for nation-wide patient-centered research in the form of a PCORNet Common Data Model (CDM) datamart. This datamart underwent a second cycle of extensive quality review in December. The HERON Cornelia release benefits from this review.

HERON Cornelia further enhances prescription fill information with Amount and Day Supply. The folder "Outpatient Dispensed Medications" now includes modifiers for "Amount" and "Day Supply" which can be use in tandem with existing prescription fill modifiers in a HERON search.
